I’m going on a semester-long trip to France here soon, and I want to keep up a blog for pictures/videos/stories etc. Any suggestions on which site to use? My sister is using tumblr, and it’s pretty nice so far I guess.

I think WordPress is pretty easy to use as a blog.

Ive used both Blogger and WordPress and I Think WOrdpress is much more user friendly and easy to figure out and I think it has a better look to it (if youre just using the templates they provide)

Thanks a lot! I want it to be easy for my friends & family to comment on my posts without having to give away too much information, or make a whole account themselves. Do those sites make it easy for that?

@teacherandageek: Yes, all you have to do is put in your name and email address and you are able to leave comments

I’ve used Blogger and WordPress as well. I used blogger for my dog’s blog. If you want to check it out, it is (link removed due to self promotion policy – sorry!). It was very easy to use.
Bummer about the link removal it is crazymollyDOTblogspotDOTcom

I’ve been using Blogspot for the last year and I really like it. When I’m ready for a custom layout and something a little nicer, I plan to switch to WordPress. But Blogspot has been easy for me to customize and change the layouts without much HTML.

FYI, I think blogspot and blogger are the same.

I originally used Blogger but recently switched to WordPress and I like it sooo much better! Way smoother interface and way less glitch-y than Blogger. I would always have trouble formatting text and photos as I wrote in Blogger but have never had that problem in WordPress. One advantage Blogger has is that you can pretty much edit whatever you want within their templates but in WordPress you’re pretty limited as to what you can edit without having a paid account. It’s not a big deal but I wish I had a little more freedom to change the colors, fonts, etc. But then again, WordPress definitely has nicer themes to begin with, so it depends what you like.

I’ve used both blogger and wordpress. My preference ended up being wordpress because there are more built in features to track readership and such. In addition, I would also recommend using Live Writer. It’s a desktop program that allows you to blog without going onto wordpress. It’s really nice.
